DPI is proud to welcome our latest contributing photojournalist, Mohamed el-Saife, who is based in Gaza in the Gaza Strip. His photos covering the life of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip show the struggle for survival. The lead photo for this blog is: “A Child Refills Drinking Water From Rain in Cold Weather“; Khan Yunis, Gaza Strip (Palestine), Novemer 26, 2020.
We present this issue from a humanitarian viewpoint not a political one. There are people living in similar or even much worse conditions in other parts of the world. We have been most fortunate to be able to show these images taken by Mohamed el-Saife who is a resident and talented photojournalist living in Gaza. If anything, DPI’s guiding principle remains toleration. It is through images such as these whether they be in Syria, Bangladesh, Dafur, Somalia, in this case the Gaza Strip or any area where conflict prevents the supply of basic necessities of life that you will observe scenes like these.
